A large and impressive lacquered and carved two-panel wood screen
Each panel elaborately carved with deeply undercut and pierced high-relief designs of Momotaro wrestling an oni and his attendants subduing the monster's retinue, both scenes framed by elaborate iris and chrysanthemum borders at top and sides, with turtles in waves framing the lower registers, each lower register containing two carp swimming against the current, the panels both enhanced by red, black, yellow, gold, silver and brown lacquer details and inlaid colored stones, the monkey with a separately carved tachi slung at his waist, the reverse with clouds and waves, the panels now each set on a pair of wheels
77 1/2 x 32 1/2in (196.8 x 82.6cm) (each panel)
